What'd You Shoot Today?

Recommended Posts

82. My putting has definitely improved, I made 2 left-breaking downhill putts of 12 - 15 feet (for par, birdie) but missed a shortish birdie putt. Key for me on the green is keeping grip pressure light and stroke rhythm constant. I hit about 65% of fairways which is good for me at least. My main swing thoughts now are good weight shift/hip bump and keeping my head slightly behind the ball in the contact zone. If I miss right it's usually because I've let my head drift forward. Maybe I'll meet my goal of breaking 80 this year.

43 out 42 in. Very disappointing. Been focusing on consistent ball striking with my irons at the range and ive started hitting them really well. But today the driver was not on (a result from too much focus on irons) so i was chipping out or trying to hit bubba fades to the green haha

Played 9 holes, lost 3 balls and shot even par.  After playing last week on a silky smooth bentgrass green course with a nearly perfectly level and planar 10 foot radius around every hole, I realized I'm actually a good putter and it isn't me making the ball bobble all over the place.  Carried that confidence on.  Being a good chipper helps too though

Shot an 86 today

40-46... I started the back off like CRAP... double triple double triple and parred the rest... sad day.

But in all honesty, I've never felt more comfortable about my driver. I'm carrying 260-270 easily (probably has something to do with the heat). But I had to wait for the green to clear on two occasions on a par 4 tee box today. And it was a good thing I did - pin high just off.

Shot 77 - missed four 6'-8' putts...grrr.

They're usually balanced out by rolling in some longer ones, but didn't make anything over 10'. Guess the 'balance outs' were 3 kick-in sand saves.

Tied for the second best round since I started playing again in April, so I was happy overall.

Shot a 92 today. Didn't get to practice this week. Part of the over 90 was due to trying to play through a legitimate low blood sugar attack which resulted in triple bogey, double bogey, bogey. I usually eat something about 30 minutes before I play and I always bring almonds and/ or a protein bar with me. I decided today to not play with these guys ever again; their attitudes were horrible. They didn't care. Yes, I get down on myself sometimes and even sling a curse word form time to time, but I would like to get better. They just want to whack a ball and say they're playing golf. They don't even play the ball as it lies?!?

87 on a par 69 course Chi Chi Rodriguez Golf Club in Clearwater. My daughter took a 1st Tee lesson this morning to. She shot a 106. She hit's her wedges and putter fairly well. If she could get her Driver and irons under control, she would be good to go. All in due time, she is improving, and loves the game, so I am happy.

Played nine holes and shot a 48.  I was really upset with how I played.  I warmed up at the range and could do no wrong.  However, as soon as I stepped onto the course it all collapsed on me! .   Oh well there's always tomorrow!

108, and with 12 drops. This was my first full round in a while. Still rehabing my ankle, 2 pars, a few boogies. I am happy, but need to fix those lost balls out there.

Shot a career low today, 70 (2 under).  I left 2 birdies on the lip of the cup and lipped out another, or it could have been one for the ages for me.  Oh well, at least this way I have something I can try to beat.  Had I posted a 67 or something, I'm not sure I could have ever beat it.  Next goal to accomplish: get into the 60's.  I had it 3 under with 3 to go, but bogied one of the toughest holes down the stretch.

Shot my best score last night. 50 on the front, 54 on the back for a 104. 4 pars, 4 bogeys plus the rest (some doubles, couple of triples and a 10). The 3rd time I've broken 110 in the last 2 weeks! (108, 109, 104) so I'm going in the right direction.

I've been trying the Stack & Tilt swing and something just clicked last night. I was hitting nice high draws with my irons and my hybrid was even better!

Was the first time I'd hit my new driver (apart from 10 or so balls when testing it out at the store) too which probably cost me a few shots.

Played 9 holes twice: 43 and 45

My putting has dramatically improved, I made 3 par putts in the 43. Unfortunately I still have not had 9 holes this year where I haven't had a double bogey or worse. Once I can eliminate those nasty holes I believe I can be under 40 for 9 holes.

I broke 80!

I shot a 79 today with a 39-40.

Again, a terrible start with a double, single, double. But the back to back birdies a few holes later helped immensely. I just couldn't read a green to save my life on the first few holes.

I broke 90 this morning! I shot an 87, my best on a par 71/72 (66.1/122 -- 5,600 yards from white tees). My driver came around on the back 9 and I hit a lot of fairways and the misses weren't bad. I also hit many more greens than I have in the past, so I had a number of real birdie attempts. I missed 2-3 birdies by inches, and another that was dead center of the cup but was hit too hard so it hit the back of the cup and rolled another 5 feet. I almost didn't head out this morning since the heat has been so bad here recently but I'm glad I did. I played as a single and was pretty much stuck behind foursomes from #2 on, so I did a lot of waiting and managed not to lose my flow on the back, knowing full well I was working on breaking my best score.

Went out to play 18, but only played 9. A storm was rolling in. Somewhere around my approach shot to the 6th green and tee shot on the 7th, I strained a muscle in my right shoulder. AAHHH the fresh smell of Icy Hot.....Anyways shot a 46 . Triple bogey on the first hole...I remember being in a hurry to tee off due to a couple groups that regularly show up on Sundays. Being rushed and not warming up properly don't make a good combo.

Shot an 80... Had a double and a quad on the back.  So freaking dumb.  Took 4 shots to get out of a fairway bunker... Made my day, let me tell you!

    • I grew up 30 min from the stadium and would go to 10+ games per year every year as a kid, have been on the field, the locker rooms, offices, etc, have been to numerous playoff games including game 7 of the 2016 World Series. They've been my favorite team my entire life. All that being said, I understand the name change and don't have a problem with them changing the name. Some of the reactions I've been seeing on social media have been ridiculous. The team being called a different name changes very little about the actual team IMO. Given the choice between the Guardians and the Spiders though, I'd probably choose Spiders, just a personal preference. I will say though that I'm not a fan of the logo. I'm not artistic in the slightest but I feel that they could have come up with a better logo than what they did. Hopefully it evolves over time into something better.
    • Much better than Washington Football Team!
    • Same for me on past 3 rounds on my Classic. They said to email them log files but there was no data in the files.  I am awaiting @DaveP043review on GG Pro as that is my next option.
